Meet the team: Eileen

It's time to meet the team in a little more detail and we're starting with Eileen Davison. Eileen has been with the salon for 17 years since starting as a Saturday assistant when she was 14. Eileen has worked in every aspect of the business and industry - from assistant to manager and from cutting on the salon floor to competition work and photo shoots. 1/ How did you get into hairdressing?

Rainbow hair is here to stay.

Over the last few years, alternative hair colour has gone from the odd candy floss pink on X Factor contestants to full on galaxy hair. We now see mermaid hair, rainbow hair, galaxy hair, flame hair and everything in between... and we LOVE IT! You only have to walk in to the salon and you can see how much we love colour. At the beginning of the year we became a Goldwell salon, which gave us access to the amazing colour products they make. Elumen by Goldwell is a hair colour system that illuminates hair from the inside out. With it we get intense and brilliant colour results with exceptional shine and durability.
